Word of the week: Wednesday!   (practice that is!)

1.  FRIENDS AND FAMILY DAY 
Once again, Great Job everyone!!! We had nearly 40 F&F, yummy food, games and great weather.  Initial feedback is very good - thank you everyone for showing up and showing our F&F's a good time!
  
2.  WEDNESDAY PRACTICES – Starts today 4/11
·         Rain may cause practice cancellation today, Check Spacebook by 12-1!!!!!!
·         5:30p on the beach to warm up, 6:00p on the water.
Reminders:
·         Wed practice poll deadline is 7p on Monday!
·         Early Spring Wednesday practices are COLD, bring warm paddling clothes and dry change of clothes. But gosh dang-it they are fun.  Sometimes they'll make this past Tempe's water conditions look down right placid.

3.  BABY LONG BEACH – Sun 4/29
·         I KNOW there are people paddling that are not signed up!  Ahem … Kim, Emilio ….
·         We're registered for 3 boats. That means YOU should sign up on the Evite!
·         It's just around the corner, so try to make the next 2 weekend practices to sync up the squads!

4.  PORTLAND
·         Sign up, Sign up, Sign up!
·         June 9-10 is approaching fast, so sign up via Evite!
·         We have a full boat of participants already, let's make it TWO! Ripple has 2 boats going, so can we!
·         1st boat Roster will be capped at 22 paddlers, we have 20 flight registrations as of Tyler! Will register a 2nd boat at 35…
v  Signing up on Evite is NOT a guaranty of a spot on the boat!  You must secure a flight and update the Evite with flight info
v  SO, if you already have your flight, update the Evite, if not, GET A FLIGHT and update Evite to secure your spot, NOW!

5.  ANNUAL SAFETY TEST – Sat 4/14
